Family Night: "Bowl" Night

Our outdoor idea from last week is just going to have to wait, I guess. We were under a Heat Advisory all week and didn't think we should be outside much - so, we had a "bowl" night.

I served "bowls" of pasta, salad and bread:

Then, we "bowled" with two-liter bottles and a plastic ball:

For dessert, I found these waffle "bowls" at the grocery store:

We all had fun - doesn't this photo just capture why we have Family Night?!

How cute. You're so good at making Family Night a priority in your house. I need to do better. Could you include a list of Family Night ideas sometime. That would be awesome.

Miriam -

If you click on the topic "Family Night" it will bring up all the posts that include Family Night Ideas - there are a bunch here to choose from. I haven't found a resource that has ideas for kids this young - so that is why I'm sharing in hopes that it will help someone else find ideas of things to do with very young children!

Hope that helps!
